    Wow, some great actors are signing up for Mom. It’ll make sure that I keep watching. Any time Ed Asner is on TV, I’m down.

    Great to know that Matt Jones is still part of the (mostly underused) ensemble. Poor Nate Corddry went from having a thousand lines in ‘Murphy’s Law’ to one line a week in this show. I’m a fan of French Stewart though, so a part of me hopes he’ll still be featured, even if just in a recurring capacity.

    Wow, I barely recognized Sara Rue. I think she was more attractive when she was heavier.
